MAC ‘Men Love Mystery’ Matte Lipstick: Review & Swatches

Hello everyone!

If you’re following my blog from quite some time now, then you know I am a total lipstick girl 🙂 This is one reason that I love to try new lipstick shades whenever I get a chance 😉

Recently, while exploring Nordstrom’s website, I saw some online beauty deals and there I found this beautiful shade of Mac lipstick, which was on sale. The shade’s name is: ‘Men Love Mystery’.

Men Love Mystery is described as a ‘lavender violet’ lip shade with a Matte finish and it has a moderately warm tone.

The application of this lipstick is very smooth even though it is matte. When I first applied it on my lips, the application was even and opaque, even though I had to swipe 2-3 times to get the desired color on my lips. It had a semi-opaque color payoff with a slightly creamy texture.

It has that wonderful vanilla scent associated with all other MAC lipsticks that I personally enjoy. On me, it lasted for four and a half hours. I did some light eating and drinking while wearing this and there was little transfer of the product.

This is how the shade looks on me:

As you can see, on the top left corner, I’ve added the picture of my bare lips. My lips are naturally pink in color. Here I haven’t used any lipliner under this lipstick. I am very impressed the way it covered my natural lip color completely.

I think this is a gorgeous shade of lipstick. In fact in my opinion, it is a very wearable purple shade. I am totally in love with this lipstick. What do you think about this shade? Do you like wearing purple on your lips? If yes, which ones do you recommend?

Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂

See you soon in the next post! Until then…
